I really believe in this publication and not just because I write for it from time to time. An annual subscription of 6 issues costs $25 or you can purchase a single issue for $5.
This next award is long overdue. The second winner of the ThinkGenealogy Innovator award is Legacy Family Tree version 7. When the innovator award is presented for software innovation, it is for a specific feature. The innovative feature that is being recognized today is Legacy 7′s source citation templates following Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace.
Previous versions of Legacy allowed for source citations, but not anywhere near this level. So this improved citaion feature can be considered an incremental innovation. Evidence Explained (or EE ) is 885 pages and contains around a thousand citation models for U.S. and international documents. Just reading the book is an accomplishment in itself but then translating that into software? Amazing!
In March 2008, I presented at the BYU Family History Technology Workshop. The topic was: 10 Things Genealogy Software Should Do. The presentation slides are now also available on SlideShare.
Here is your puzzle for this week. When you solve it, add your name and answer to the comments along with the other puzzle solvers:
